    they are the same price at lesco as they are direct, lesco does work on them so if you bought it from them you would probablly get better service if you had a problem.

    I would not rely on lesco for servicing any equipment you may buy from them, they do not have enough mechanics for the issues that may appear. They do not stock many parts for any machines. How long can you wait for parts? 2 weeks, a month or more? past experiences dictates my opinion.

    the permagreen is pretty simple to service, so having somebody to fix it would not concern me. the parts avaibility would. so if you have a local lesco, then buy it from them, and save the shiping cost.

    The only dealer in my area to service PG's just informed us they are dropping them. They cited lack of communication from PermaGreen. We would get the updated parts, and recalls mailed and I would take the Magnum in for service. They would have no idea about any of the stuff going on.

    Pg is easy to maintain. Only thing we had was my needle went out on the starter / engine. Had our local toro dealer do the work. Go direct - no sales tax.

    Wouldnt the shipping just about equal the sales tax?
